when they're close together you get pressure difference. heaviest wind location will be in the east bay hills. heavy areas wind advisory in san francisco, san jose down in the sea level areas will have strong wind as well. the forecast highs, notice how strong they are, offshore winds, the air sinks as it sinks it warms. the fog should be gone by lunchtime tomorrow: in places it wasn't gone like in san jose. temperatures will warm up into the upper 60s. not concerned about fire danger. although you have to think about it when you get strong winds. just know that the heaviest wind are going to be tomorrow evening, tomorrow night i think the wind is going to be the big story for us. wednesday night into thursday morning. tomorrow it will just be ramping up. >> all right, so it's fast. thank you bill. coming up on bay area news at 7:00, we'll give you another live look at what's happening at tonight's general assembly at the site of san francisco's
